Crashing Paradise clearly shows that co-author Thomas Sniegoski helps create this novel to be the perfect mixing of mythological creatures of the dark with Biblical mythos to create the ultimate hardcore Dark Fantasy adventure that will thrill fans of this genre, showing clearly that these two authors are at the top of their game.
Whether you've read the other 3 Menagerie novels or not, you can easily read this as a stand alone novel, capturing all the beauty and savagery that CRASHING PARADISE produces.
The new Legion of Doom the author's integrate in this novel are fully fleshed-out, believable monsters that are not your typical cardboard cut-out baddies. That's what makes this series - and this book especially! - stand out as the ultimate in the most evidently ever-growing and most popular and hot genre going now - Dark Urban fantasy.
From Earth to The Garden of Eden, authors Golden and Sniegoski create a solid storyline chock-full of interesting and ever-growing characters that fit inside this world-building juggernaut that will surely tittilate you into reading into the early hours of the morning. Yes, it is just that great!
The Menagerie battle their most dangerous foes to date here, from angels to demons in their myriad forms, all vying for domination in the beauty and savagery of the Garden of Eden. The beautiful Eve, the mother of all vampires, driven from Paradise by God after tasting the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, truly stands out here in this novel as she seeks to repent for her centuries of sin and destroy those vampires that she is the mother of - as well as those demons and bad angels that combine their powerful forces to enter the Gate of Eden.
And the other character that stands out here is Clay, the immortal shapeshifter that God created who is made and molded from everything the earth is made from. Extremely interesting character and love interest for Eve which captures the imagination of the readers. They are both on a quest to find and remember their origins, and how they do this is truly a masterpiece and a thrill ride to read about. Can't say enough great stuff about this.
If this is the prelude to come for the imminent and ultimate threat of the upcoming Demogorgon - then me and my husband await with bated breath! Fans of sci-fi/fantasy/dark fantasy are in for a gigantic adventure in this single novel, sure to please the masses. Utterly terrific!
if we could give this 10 stars - we would.
Led by sorcerer Arthur Doyle, the Menagerie are a unique cast of characters, from hobgoblins to shapeshifters. Though, the character of Eve is by far the most interesting. After her exile from Eden she also birthed the evil race of vampires. But now, Eve seeks redemption and has been trying to hunt down and destroy the evil that she helped create.
Crashing Paradise is the 4th novel in the Menagerie series, but can definitely stand alone. There was enough backstory on the characters to give a general idea of who they were, so I wasn't too confused. Containing plenty of action and violence, this was an exciting dark fantasy that intrigued me enough to want to go back and check out the rest of the series.
